Hamas renews rocket fire at Israel after Gaza lull

Hamas resumed firing rockets at Israel from Gaza on Saturday, after a 12-hour humanitarian window which the world had said should pave the way for a longer-term truce. The rocket fire came shortly after Israel announced it would extend the humanitarian ceasefire for another four hours, as its security cabinet debated whether to press on with the 19-day operation. The conflict has claimed more than 1,000 Palestinian lives, most of them civilians, and has killed 40 Israeli soldiers as well as three civilians inside Israel. US Secretary of State John Kerry met European and Middle Eastern foreign ministers in Paris earlier to push both sides to extend the temporary truce, which began at 0500 GMT.
